If you eat too much and don’t exercise enough, you’ll gain pounds.
If you acquire too many books and don’t read enough, you’ll gain books.
I have too many books. And I’m just cataloguing the latest acquisitions. Meantime, other activities are eating into my reading time. So I started a book diet at the beginning of the year. Most years I’ve set a goal of reading XX books in each year. This year, I want to end up the owner of fewer ‘To Be Read’ books. I’m tracking the reading and reviews on my blog but what to keep a simple tally here. As the 1st of January has come and gone, I’ve already started counting and we’re at +9 ie my collection of TBR books has grown by 9. And that’s not counting the books sitting in front of me! So here we go …
Balance carried forward – +9
Incoming books – +7
Books read – -3
Today’s balance – +13
See you tomorrow!
